That might be harder than I had hoped it took me two nights to
figure out why it was just booting to grub, turn out deleting a FAT
partition changed things enough to stop the boot process, I dread
the think what will happen if I add another drive or two. Shame
there is no way to do this without the screw driver.
Thanks again for the info.
